rio+20, stockholm+40, peter+50: our common future, etc

rio

in 2012, i turn 50. perhaps more importantly, the earth summit in rio, at which 12-year-old severn cullis-suzuki spoke so eloquently, turns 20. our common future (also known as the Brundtland Report) (‘furthering the common understanding and common spirit of responsibility so clearly needed in a divided world.’), turns 25. the Stockholm Conference turns 40. do everything, turn, turn, turn. were truer words ever sung?

and for all you re-enactors, it’s the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812. also, it’s a hundred years since the titanic sank. woody guthrie was born in 1912.
